Haha not quite! Playing in a father son tournament in California. First match is at 2:30 PT!

What's your son's handicap?

Good lord, Dick with the first over reaction of the year

I didn't see either of the first two games on TV but he can't have waited until the third game.

I can stand in my yard and flap my arms all day, but it doesn't make me a bird. 


Likewise, DanSan's ability to flail his limbs wildly at batted balls in a variety of positions around the field make him a valuable defensive asset.



I'm quite confident in the accuracy of your first sentence. But just for fun, will you do it anyway?

Duffy, Perez, Gordon, Kennedy and Soler may be their core for next year. Herrera will be expensive for a reliever, in his last year of arbitration. With the exception of Soler, all may be expensive, and Perez, Kennedy and Gordon may become big overpays. Their bullpen looks awful. There's not much in their minors, pending possible returns for Hosmer, Moustakas and Cain, none of whom will bring back anything like the Adam Eaton or Chris Sale package. It's looking grim for KC.

I just don't see a return for Hosmer and Moustakis. And I cannot believe KC spent that much on Gordon, considering his age and how much time he spends on the DL.


I just looked up Cain and he will soon be 31. I think if there is any kind of return for Cain, KC needs to go for it.

dansan and buxton in an exciting battle for the position of designated punto!

People forget that Punto had a career BA of .245 and a WAR of 15.3. Comparing him with DanSan is an insult. He could actually catch the ball too.

His father, obviously.

They only have 1-2 good position players.....I'm not sure losing most of these guys matters now. Like I said, should have blown it up during last year and this off season.

Last year? There is no way a team coming off a WS championship, with most of its roster intact, is blowing up anything. That is not realistic.
